Science: ideals vs. reality

Fernando PĂ©rez gave a talk at Pycon 2014 with a brilliant slide:

The ideals reality of science:

  • The pursuit of verifiable answers highly cited papers for your c.v.
  • The validation of our results by reproduction convincing referees who did not see your code or data
  • An altruistic, collective enterprise A race to outrun your colleagues in front of the giant bear of grant funding
